lenten journal: lent and late night

    2
    25

    somehow the night
    has slipped away
    without leaving the
    words it promised
    and I have spent
    far too long
    staring at a
    white page in
    a dark room
    as though the
    sheer silence of
    sitting would shape
    the darkness into
    sentences and help
    me keep my
    promises for Lent
    I have deleted
    far more than
    I have saved
    but that’s true
    most any day
    I must sleep

    Peace,
    Milton

    1. Haven’t commented for a while but this is so beautiful I must. Low key and full of imagery at the same time. I love the ending, especially, for some reason, “but that’s true most any day”
